Good afternoon.I hope you have had the opportunity to get out and enjoy the wonderful weather this weekend.
With the exception of some transportation issues, we had a pretty good week.Kids and teachers seem to be settling into their schedules and getting back into “school shape.”
I am including two attachments to the Blackboard Connect Parent Update email that may be of interest. ·The first is information regarding technology use that may come in handy to you and/or your kids. ·The second is in regard to the Junior Rams Basketball Club.Please note that this is not the school-sponsored sport offered to our 8th graders through our after school sports program.

I have had challenges with transportation this afternoon, including Activity Buses.My sincere apologies if you and your students have been affected.
The West activity buses have left our campus within the last 5 minutes and are on their way.
The East activity buses left about 15 minutes ago.
I will follow up with the appropriate folks to remedy this.

Picture Day 8/26/15

Good morning.
I would like to remind everyone that Picture Day at LMS is scheduled for this Wednesday, August 26.Attached to the Blackboard Connect parent email is a reminder, provided by Wagner Portrait Group.
Pictures will be taken in the Gymnasium.We will pull students from Physical Education and selected elective classes during the day.It is my hope that we will be done by around 2 pm.
Picture order forms were sent home with students last week.If you wish to purchase a picture package for your child, you can do so in one of two ways: 1.Complete and picture order form, include payment, and send it in with your child on Wednesday.Completed order packets should stay with the student, who will provide it to the photographer in the Gym when their turn comes. 2.Order a picture package online at and use the school password “LMS.”Your child should then return a completed picture order form and a copy of your online receipt to the photographer.
